Lake Jordan is the southernmost reservoir in the chain of lakes along the Coosa River. Located just south and east of the geographic center of Alabama, Lake Jordan is approximately 25 miles from Montgomery and 75 miles from Birmingham with the dam located a little north of Wetumpka. The lake, impounded December, 1928, covers approximately 6,800 acres and has a shoreline of approximately 118 miles. The distance between Mitchell Dam at the north end and Jordan Dam at the south end is approximately 18 miles. Average depth is 35 feet with the deepest point just above the dam measuring approximately 110 feet. Bouldin Dam is a separate impoundment, built much later and connected by a short canal. Located 252 feet above Mean Sea Level, most of the western shoreline of Lake Jordan is in the Fall Line Hills of the East Gulf Coastal Plain. The eastern shoreline is Northern Piedmont Upland, offering great geographic diversity.
